THE Suvavou Volleyball Club is thankful to the Suva Volleyball Association for choosing their young players to play in the upcoming Battle of the Powerhouse.

Suva and Raiwai will contest for the Qilio Trophy in the mens competition while the womens will compete for the Belo Trophy on January 18 at the FMF Gymnasium in Suva.

Apart from the major teams, an under 15, under 17, under 19, under 21 and masters competition will also be played.

Suva's under 15 and under 17 teams will come from the Suvavou club.

Club member Mosese Tuilau said they were looking forward to the competition.

"Our boys and girls have been training well from even before the festive season," he said.

"We had a Boxing Day tournament and a New Year's Day tournament and they were good build-up for our players."

Tuilau said they were using volleyball as a means of combating drugs and crime in the community.

"As you know youths are keen on experimenting with alcohol, cigarettes and marijuana but we don't want that in our community.

"So we are using volleyball to try and get our youths involved in sports so that they stay away from drugs and crime.

"Crime is another thing that youths get involved in but we find that keeping them occupied with sports can help fight against crime."
